A text region with two imbedded math regions.  (A lot of work!)

Are you looking for something like this (use symbolic evaluation)

You should fill the gray blocks with parts of your expression. So the 3 squared goes into the first grey block, the n squared goes into the second.

Success!

Thank you Fred.

Now i can input "1^2+2^2+..+n^2" successfully in MathCAD Prime with your help.

MathCAD Prime can't input "1^2+2^2+..+n^2" successfully without gray blocks in math area.

For formula derivation record, i think word with formula editor(such as MathType) or LaTaX is better.

Ah, now I see what you're after. How about:

(Just put a dot on each of the grey boxes).

As a matter of fact I use Mathcad a lot for formula derivation record. It works a lot faster than formula typesetting in MsWord (unless you have efofex)
